Annie Bergen: "An artist painted this wall a few years back but, perhaps because the surface was inadequately prepared, the Mural didn't last very long.
So, I was asked to recreate the scene of an English fox hunt. Although I was asked to work with the same subject, I had the freedom to do it my own way by creating a new composition.
I did some research at the library and studied as many fox-hunt images that I could find. The design that I came up with depicts a hunting party and their hounds running through the
landscape in pursuit of a fox in the foreground. The riders and horses are clumsy; one horse struggles to jump a fence and another has thrown the rider into a nearby stream.
The sly fox, who gets away effortlessly, is the victor in this hunt while the hunters are in a sense mocked. I enjoy the humorous spin on this scene; I like the idea of the comparatively
small and helpless fox outrunning and escaping the big, powerful hunters."
